The Four Required Steps to Become a Top Earner in Network Marketing!
It's time for a reality check because a "virus" commonly infects entrepreneurs and especially likes to reside in the fertile brains of struggling network marketers.
To help you clear your mind, I will show you how you can inoculate yourself and begin your journey to earn a spot amongst the top earners in the network marketing industry.
I know this might sound a little weird, but if you act on what I'm going to share with you today, you will see some very drastic and positive changes in your business (and bank account) almost immediately.
Watch the video below to learn more…,
Here's the reality—the truth—based on my experience, okay?
I can only share my experience; I can't speak for others.
There's something I learned quickly when I started building my business online, and that's how this business needed to become a lifelong journey for me.
Let me explain…,
If you are here for the long haul, you need to treat your business like a profession (and not just a hobby).
Now, I want you to be honest with yourself and own up to it if you have been "infected by the virus"…,
You've got to be willing to do a self-assessment and see if you've fallen victim.
Can you do that?
So what is this "virus," then?
It is the expectation that…,
- When you join a company…,
- When you start marketing in a specific way…,
- When you start executing on something recommended to you by your mentor or by a coach…,
success should happen.
In other words, it's an "employee mindset" of…,
"Just tell me what I need to do!"
“…and then, if I do it, I should automatically make money, without having to learn any special skills, right?”
Well, that is not the case at all!
It would be best if you manage your expectations.
Otherwise, just like the flu or a cold; the symptoms will continue to get worse and worse.
You might start saying:
“Well, I expect that I should be here, and I’m not, yet so this isn’t working.”
“They told me to do this, and it’s not working the way I expect it to, so it doesn’t work, or it works for other people, but it doesn’t work for me.”
Can you relate?
Have you said any of those things before?
Remember, you promised to own-up to it, it’s the only way you can start changing for the better!
Perhaps you can relate to this instead:
So, there’s the expectation that 30 days into doing Facebook marketing or prospecting, that you should be getting the results like someone who has honed in their craft for years of tireless, sleepless nights.
Have you thought that way?
Or even expecting that you should have lots of success after even a few months of implementing a particular strategy.
But in reality, that’s not necessarily the case.
We all pay a different price.
You can't expect the same results as someone who has prioritized their business for the past year, sometimes even before family, vacations, or buying new furniture.
Let me give you an example.
Think of a neurosurgeon and the number of years, study, and skills that took them to hone in their craft: at least 15 years of money, hard work, and sacrifice!
If you think about it, wouldn't you truly respect them and trust their skill sets?
Of course, you would!
By the same token…,
It would help if you respected the people who have come before you and have taken the time actually to learn our profession's skills.
I say it's an elite few who earn their place at the top because they have a way of not paying attention to those negative thoughts going through their minds.
Despite those thoughts or feelings, they get on with learning and implementing the skills they need to become successful.
So, what is one way you could start doing that?
Having a strong and positive mindset is a practical skill in and of itself to master.
"Overnight success" is an exciting phrase because overnight success meant (for me) working 8-10 hours a day for 12 to18 months.
For us, it also meant hours of studying, implementing, executing and trusting in what we were learning from our mentors.
Not to mention the years before we started seeing some success, before Elite Marketing Pro, nothing was working out.
So, you probably know by now…,
"Overnight" success is never indeed overnight.
So how did we become successful?
Like one of my mentors, Ferny, said:
"Don't put an expiration date on your success!"
If someone were to ask me how long do you expect this to take?
I would have said…,
"I don't care."
I would have said:
"Whatever it takes to achieve what I want to achieve in this profession, and be and grow into who I know, I can be inside this profession."
Moreover, it would be best if you did another thing to become successful, and I challenge you to change your words.
If you are using words right now like:
"I'm generating prospects, but I'm not making sales or recruiting anyone, and I'm frustrated."
You need to stop yourself and change your thinking.
To succeed and earn your space at the top, you have to change how you speak and view your business.
When you are just starting, you're wise to remember there's always a learning curve and that other people who have more knowledge and mastered their craft have come before you.
There are always other successful people you can learn from.
It would help if you become an intentional apprentice and acquire the knowledge and network marketing skills necessary to hone your craft.
Also, continue to reinvest in yourself because there's always a new level that you can excel and surpass every year.
There is always room for growth!
To get where the tipping top is, earn your spot with the elite in your business and become ultra-successful, you need to make some sacrifices.
And those sacrifices, such as working for no pay (or even paying to work) for you to learn a particular skill, may seem like a setback or slow you down.
But, they are necessary for you to become a master in your craft.
The skillsets you are learning and your mentors are teaching you are worth the sacrifices you make.
They will pay in the long run, even if it doesn't seem like it is the most direct route for you to take.
Therefore, it is essential to come from the mindset that you will do whatever is possible to soak up others' wisdom that has taken the time to hone their craft.
To build a lifetime's worth of knowledge, which you can pass to others.
You have two paths to choose between right now…,
1. The path of acquiring the virus of setting expectations that, frankly, are not realistic and not respecting what it took for other people before you to develop the knowledge to be as successful, or…,
2. Choosing to be an intentional apprentice to master a craft, learn from the best, and understand that it will pay long-term if you master that craft and choose to study at the top.
Additionally, it will create an impact long-term, which is necessary to be genuinely called a professional in this space and earn your spot at the top.
I didn't say get your spot, but EARN it!
Earn your way to the top by being someone who has truly created an impact in this industry.
How could you start earning that spot at the top?
- First, you must be aware that it will take time and set realistic expectations.
- Second, you must respect that others have taken a long time and sacrifice to hone the skills you want to master.
One of the main things I can tell you that changed everything for us was getting mentorship.
A sign that someone is on their way to earning their space in the elite few is what my mentor Ferny Ceballos told us, and what he's told everyone else that's at that level where they're rising is:
"If you only do what I tell you to do, you will not be successful."
Please write it down, put it on a post-it on your wall and tattoo it on your body!
Just kidding, but do write it down!
Listen, those who earn their space at the top make their area because they first do what is recommended and trust their mentors.
And instead of only doing what they are told, they accelerate past it.
By testing and trying out other things to enhance the recommendations and then looking back for feedback.
How should you look for feedback?
Well, if you look for feedback like this:
"I'm overwhelmed, I'm stuck. This is so hard, I'm struggling, and I can't understand why I can't figure it out."
If you do that, you can forget about it.
The above is mainly complaining and not looking or asking for feedback.
You want someone to feel bad for you and rescue you.
But, if you want to become a success story like so many before you, here's the way that you should look for feedback:
- Here's what I did…,
- Here is what you recommended; here are my results…,
- Here are the things that didn't necessarily work this time…,
- Here's why I think I got these results & what I can do better…,
- And here's what I'm looking for feedback on…,
Do you see the difference between this and the "I'm overwhelmed, etc., etc." stuff?
I know you do.
Those words "overwhelmed," "being stuck," and "frustrated" need to be cut out of your vocabulary.
Instead, act from a space of respect, willingness to learn, and implement what is recommended.
In addition to going that extra mile.
There is a shift in the mindset of what happens when you act from that space, take action from that space, and build a business.
I promise you it is worth it.
